5. Fully Funded PhD Position in What makes particle packings stable?

Summary of PhD Program:

How particles pack together to make stable structures is a puzzle that has been addressed by many illustrious scientists and engineers, including Kepler, Coulomb and James Clerk Maxwell. Recent interest has grown from a need to design porous packings or materials for a range of critical applications, such as absorption and molecular storage for CO2 and H2, effective filtration eg in water treatment, understanding sediment formation and soil instabilities in natural phenomena and for climate resilience, improving particulate processes such as tableting in foods and pharmaceuticals, and designing innovative materials such as structured low-density solids for construction, aerospace, transport and packaging.

Of particular interest is the case of small particles, where thermal energy fluctuations (Brownian motion) play an important role: this case includes packings made from chemical and physical flocculation/gelation, with applications such as manufacture of adsorbents and porous materials; and natural sedimentation processes involving microscopic particles such as fines, micropollutants and algae.

6. Fully Funded PhD Position in Sustainable Solar Fuels: from Material Innovation to Circular Economy

Summary of PhD Program:

From solar energy to fuel: A holistic artificial photosynthesis platform for the production of viable solar fuels, funded through EU Horizon. The project aims to develop a hybrid platform system of artificial photosynthesis for the circular and sustainable production of butanol, a green platform chemical and advanced biofuel, from solar energy, water and waste CO2. This is realised via three integrated units: Unit 1, a photovoltaic unit converting sunlight to electricity, Unit 2 – electrolyser that uses novel catalysts based on earth-abundant materials to split water into hydrogen and oxygen with high efficiency and stability; and Unit 3, a bioreactor that uses bioengineered bacteria to selectively convert hydrogen and CO2 into butanol with high productivity and tolerance.

7. Fully Funded PhD Position in Green Circular Economy Using Hydrogen Derivatives

Summary of PhD Program:

The UK currently imports all its copper, nickel, cobalt, and a variety of other critical metals from overseas. This poses not only a supply security threat, but also frustrates the aim of decarbonising since most of the imported material is produced using pyrometallurgical methods and have to be transported to the UK from the Far East, both of which have a large carbon footprint. As this country approaches net-zero, it is anticipated that the electricity grid will require expansion – with a concomitant requirement for many of the metals used for generation (such as magnetic and rare-earths metals), distribution through the grid network (i.e. cables), and well as power transformation at consumer end.

8. Fully Funded PhD Position in Computational screening and scale-up of porous materials for biogas upgrading

Summary of PhD Program:

Biogas is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, particularly since methane (its main component) is ~28 times more potent than CO2 in trapping heat in the atmosphere. Upgrading biogas to renewable natural gas or bio-methane, would mitigate these emissions while also harnessing the energy potential of anthropogenic waste. This requires the biogas stream to be purified from roughly 60% to at least 90% methane, removing CO2 and other contaminants in the process. Among all available technologies, including scrubbing, membranes and adsorption processes, the latter offer higher energy efficiency and comparatively low cost. However, the effectiveness of adsorption processes hinges on the optimal selection of adsorbent material.

11. Fully Funded PhD Position in Hybrid Ocean Renewables in a Changing Climate

Summary of PhD Program:

Extensive global coastlines specifically in tropical climates, present a unique opportunity for the development of Ocean Renewable Energy (ORE) systems. The project envisions the integration of these individual energy systems into a comprehensive hybrid ORE system. This approach is crucial to optimise energy output, reduce intermittency, and create a resilient energy infrastructure. Various countries such as the United States, Australia, Japan, China, Portugal, Spain, and South Korea have considerable potential for offshore wind and wave energy due to their long coastlines and the coastal landscapes exposed to open ocean.

12. Fully Funded PhD Position in Advanced Processing Methods for Long Baseline Multistatic Radars for Space Situational Awareness

Summary of PhD Program:

Since their inception, ground-based Space Situational Awareness (SSA) systems, also known as Space Surveillance and Tracking (SST), primarily utilise radar sensors due to their ability to operate in very long ranges and under various atmospheric conditions while also providing very accurate range measurements. Initially used for early missile warning, modern SST radars are designed to monitor targets in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) up to deep space. Having very high-power transmissions, to improve their efficiency radar can also operate in tandem with nearby radio telescopes forming what is known as bistatic configuration.

13. Fully Funded PhD Position in Inspection of nuclear fusion components in high temperature using laser induced ultrasound phase arrays

Summary of PhD Program:

This PhD project will face the challenges of ultrasonic imaging of nuclear fusion components using lasers to generate and detect ultrasound, remotely and in a series of environmental conditions with respect to temperature for the first time. The aim of the PhD will be to identify the capabilities and limitations of laser ultrasonic imaging of fusion relevant components in high temperatures.

Fusion research and development is prominent in the current global quest for low carbon energy and Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) is the key to deliver commercially viable and safe fusion energy to society. The tokamak route to a fusion power plant promises efficient and safe operation, therefore, NDE is an essential requirement. Ultrasound is a widely used imaging modality that allows inspection of non-transparent structures.

14. Fully Funded PhD Position in Acoustic Devices & Metamaterials

Summary of PhD Program:

Directional Microphones: Acoustic signals can provide for the detection and location of acoustic sources. The problem of location is that it relies on triangulating a source using sensors which are spaced far enough apart. Miniature directional microphones have therefore been an active research topic for some time, but with little practical success. Some moths are capable of directional hearing despite sound wavelengths significantly longer than the distance between their ears. Recent work has shown that directionality for one moth it exclusively relies on the shape of the eardrum membrane itself. This PhD project will explore a new acoustic directional sensor concept inspired by the moth’s ear. This new concept provides a means to reach towards a truly wideband, miniature directional acoustic sensor.

15. Fully Funded PhD Position in Neuromorphic photonic-electronic integrated circuits for fast and efficient SPIKE-based information PROcessing (SPIKEPRO)

Summary of PhD Program:

This PhD project will design, develop and investigate novel (brain-like) photonic-electronic systems for future high-speed and energy-efficient light-enabled neuromorphic computing and AI technologies. These systems will use ultrafast neural-like optical and electrical spikes (rather than traditional digital signals) to process information and will enable multi-modal (both photonic and electronic) operation. Specifically, this programme will develop and analyse experimentally novel artificial photonic and electronic spiking neurons and processors as well as their connectivity to form photonic-electronic spiking neural networks (SNNs), based upon key-enabling opto-electronic devices (e.g. semiconductor lasers, resonant tunnelling diodes). These will be implemented with compact photonic-electronic integrated circuits. Importantly, this programme will also focus on the development of efficient algorithms for the training and operation of the developed spike-based neuromorphic photonic-electronic processing platforms.
